This book provides a single-source reference on the current state of the ribosome profiling method by describing experimental protocols for the quantitative analysis of translation in a variety of model organisms. In addition, the volume presents a detailed overview of the existing software tools and includes detailed description of methods for statistical analysis, data processing, and visualization of ribosome profiling data. Written for the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology
series, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.
Authoritative and practical, Ribosome Profiling: Methods and Protocols aims to provide the type of standardized protocols that have previously been unavailable in an effort to bypass the major barriers to wide use of ribosome profiling-based approaches.
